Actors Shatner, Hamlin promoting their new film

SHARE Actors Shatner, Hamlin promoting their new film

William Shatner and Harry Hamlin found that making an independent film is a piece of cake. Promoting it is the challenge.

The two actors were in the Twin Cities Friday for the premiere of the farce "Shoot or Be Shot," a parody of Hollywood.

Their day started around 6 a.m. and ended at 10 p.m. The schedule included a series of radio, TV and newspaper interviews and public appearances, delayed repeatedly by fans.

"This is not a big-budget movie," said Hamlin. "We're doing it because we love the story, and we love the characters. We love the movie."
